How To Enjoy The Beach During The Winter
No matter what time of the year, the beach always has something unique to offer. Many people often gravitate away from the beach during the Winter season due to the unfavorable weather conditions.
Here are three ways to make the most of the beach during the Winter season:
Have a Photoshoot
During the Winter, the beach can often have a dreamy and cool ambiance since there is often less beachgoers. This would be a great time for you to take advantage of its aesthetic and have a photoshoot on the beach. Whether you own a DSLR or a smartphone - taking photos and making special memories with your loved ones by the shore is free and easy. Be sure to wear cool colors such as white, grey, navy, and blue to bring out the special atmosphere of the beach at this time of year.
Birds often flock to the Corpus Christi shores during the Winter time, making it a prime time for birdwatching. Special Winter bird species include Ruddy turnstones and Willets, along with the unofficial Winter beach mascot - the little Sandlering. Birdwatching can be done on the beach, though it is important to be considerate of their habitats. Be sure to also pick up after any trash you might leave so that it doesn’t interfere with their living space.
Have a Small Campfire
What better way to stay warm and cozy than with a campfire by the beach? Gather up some small pieces of firewood and smores ingredients for an enjoyable time with your friends or family. Be sure to also have on sight some blankets and light jackets to keep warm since it can get pretty chilly on a Winter night. It is also important to be aware of coastal winds that might arise, so be on the lookout for the wind forecast for that evening.
